The same morning a “Decree on the acceptance of a donation” appeared in the OJ, specifying: “Is accepted the donation of a sum of money in the amount of forty thousand euros, paid by check dated January 15, 2021, granted in order to reduce the public deficit of the State by Mr. Michel Fache. “
No further details are given about this person.
A report by the Court of Auditors on the situation of public finances, dating from last June, assessed at the time the public debt at “The equivalent of almost 40,000 euros per French”. These forecasts have since been reassessed, due to a slightly better situation than the initial estimates.
